I wondered if anyone else had a similar experience.
My A&P I instuctor seems to write tests for material other than the topic we're covering. Her timing is very strange as well.
The final was based on 150 points. My standing in class is (was) 92% overall so I was prepared to put in massive amounts of study time to retain my grade that I've worked so hard for.
We didn't recieve our test out line until a week before the test
It turned out to be 100 points based on the section that we just flew through to finish it on time. That would be no problem except for the study guide outline alone totaled over 45 pages! To put the icing on the cake she added a few pages of hormones in outline form
I can't begin to describe the test to you. Although I had the last three days off and put in well over 12 hours of study time alone per day and had studied at work, on the toilet, you know the drill, on flashcards that covered every nuance of that "study guide" material, I still stared at most of the questions in disbelief. Most of it did'nt seem to come from the material at all, and the other 50 points that were cumulative................Essay, all essay.
I think maybe I should change instructors for A&PII, but won't bother if I would just trade one evil for another. I think she must have other issues that interfere with organization or something about teaching she does'nt grasp.
I'm an excellent student(99% in micro this semester) but I have failed to master whatever it is that she is teaching.
Have your experiences been similar?
I think I just turned a low "A" into a "C", seriousely I was guessing through most of it. If I got more than 50 points I'll be suprised.
